A place for people who think

Austin—renowned for its literate population— relies on just a few independent bookshops

Seems like independent bookstores—maybe even all bookstores—are endangered.

Who knows, eventually there might come a day when people don't remember the joy of browsing the shelves, leafing through a book, cherishing the touch of the pages, the aroma of the bindery glue, the sound of the riffle, the art of the book designer.

Happily, that time hasn't arrived yet.

When you visit our store, you'll remember what you love about books and bookstores. Spend a few minutes with us, and you'll agree: Blue Awning Books is a used bookstore that Austin can be proud of.

Open Monday through Saturday
from 10 to 6, Sunday from noon to 5.
